I’m Paul A. Rude, Owner of Summer Street. Thanks for visiting! I offer quality home inspections plus help for homeowners dealing with remodeling, construction defects, and related issues.

Here I'm checking out a deck under construction at a client's home.

I am a Certified Member of  ASHI®, the American Society of Home Inspectors. This is the leading national trade group for home inspectors. I am past President of the Golden Gate Chapter of ASHI.

I am also a licensed California general contractor (no. 546124) with extensive experience in remodeling older homes, structural repairs, and investigation of construction defects. I have seen first hand what can go wrong when builders cut corners, and what it can take to fix major defects.
